Two-day Pop Up event in Totnes to showcase talents of local creatives
Mosaic and The Kitchen Table, two vibrant Totnes organisations, are coming together to showcase the talents of local creative folk at a Pop Up! event and everyone is invited to join them on Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13.
The launch event is being held at The Methodist Hall and the creative team behind Mosaic – Tim Long and Laura Cameron – intend to transform the hall beyond all recognition.
Tim said: ‘The most important thing to realise is that this is going to be completely different to a craft fair; it will be a temporary café-shop with stunning locally produced goods, child play area, fantastic food provided by local catering company, The Kitchen Table, real coffee, and entertainment from around the area – think sofas, twinkly lights and rugs, and you might be somewhere close!”
Mosaic intends to focus upon those talented creatives who aren’t professional makers, artists or entertainers, but have quality goods and no place to sell them.
Lizzie Kirwan, who recently started a home décor business with her mum, called Four Seasons Designs said: “Mosaic is supporting my business by selling my items for me – it means I don’t have to stand on a stall all day and can focus on creating instead, as every item I produce is completely original. I think it’s a really unique idea and I’m excited about the potential it has.”
The Pop Up! event isn’t just about arts and crafts, there will also be a large variety of goods, including clothing, plants, and books written by local authors – it’s about celebrating what’s produced locally.
Throughout both days, delicious lunches, snacks and real coffee will be available, provided by co-organisers, The Kitchen Table.
